DESCRIPTION: (from Hallmark's press release) A shocking change in a woman's life inspires those around her to reconsider what's really important to them in "Living Out Loud," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Saturday, May 2 (9/8c). Three-time Emmy nominee Gail O'Grady ("Desperate Housewives," "American Dreams") stars in the family drama that reminds us that it's never too late to live a life without fear or regrets. Emily Marshall (O'Grady) is a high school chorus teacher who is all about helping others achieve their goals, having abandoned her own years before as a youthful fantasy. But a visit to the doctor throws Emily for a loop when she is diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. She starts chemotherapy treatment right away, leaving her husband Brad (Michael Shanks, "Stargate SG-1") to take care of Melissa (Jessica Amlee, "Heartland") and Ben (Alex Ferris, "The L Word"), their children he's been too busy with work to get to know. Through her treatment sessions, Emily befriends a number of other women, including Connie (Babz Chula, "The French Guy"), whose strong will and optimistic attitude inspire Emily to start writing songs again, a hobby she let go of when she started her family. In turn, Emily's newfound strength becomes an inspiration to those around her.
